I'd recommend the J.S. Bach CD Box set, only because I'm partial to the Baroque period.

The well known composures of that time were,

Johann Sebastian Bach

George Frideric Handel

Antonio Vivaldi

Jean-Baptiste Lully

Arcangelo Corelli,

Alessandro Scarlatti,

Georg Philipp Teleman

Jean-Philippe Rameau

Henry Prucell

Claudio Monteverdi.

I would also listen to Classical Music on Pandora if you have an iPod/Touch/iPad.

Instead of getting those box sets with complete works, you might also want to consider if getting selected works by all three composers could be an option for you. Bach's music is outstanding, but I'm not sure if you're that keen on getting all 200+ cantatas for a start if you're new to his music.

Just to get started, I personally would recommend to get recordings of

Bach: The Well-Tempered Clavier, Goldberg Variations (played by Glenn Gould), St Matthew Passion, St John Passion, Mass b minor, The Brandenburg Concertos

Mozart: The Piano Concertos (you might be able to get a complete box with the very good early Barenboim recordings from the 1960s at a reasonable prize these days), selected Symphonies (Nos. 39, 40, 41), Don Giovanni, The Magic Flute

Beethoven: Complete Symphonies (the recording by David Zinman from the 1990s is superb and should be affordable), selected Piano Sonatas (Pathetique, Moonlight, Appasionata, op. 106) or even the complete set of Piano Sonatas (I'd recommend the recording by Friedrich Gulda from the late 1960s, which isn't too pricey these days)

Borrow some CDs from your local library and decide which one you want to really delve into firsthand.

these seem like really good suggestions to me

I agree with EmancipationLover and AlexdeParis.

But if you're gonna get one of the three, I'd say go for Beethoven. His music is the easiest to get into and it's some of the most emotionally driven classical music you'll ever hear.
